BEND, OR -- A former employee of the Oregon Department of Justice and Deschutes County District Attorney's office has been sentenced to probation for stealing more than 56-thousand dollars in government funds. Bruce Endicott pleaded guilty in June.
Court documents reveal he received disability and unemployment benefits through the VA while working for the DOJ under a second Social Security number. Later, he worked for the D-A’s office, and claimed unemployment through his second Social Security number when he left that job in 2014.
Federal prosecutors say 34-year-old Endicott also failed to pay child support while receiving double benefits. He was ordered to serve three years probation, 250 hours of community service and pay full restitution.
